      I ate a few right out of the pickling liquid, before canning, and yow! This is one crazy sharp, sweet pickle. (There was not an amount of water listed, so I used 1/2 cup -- maybe I got the proportions wrong.) I bet it will be great with biscuits and cheese -- good suggestion. I thought they deserved a unique look, so I added a little green food coloring to the pickling liquid just before packing the pears. Hahahaha! They look like something from a mad scientist's laboratory -- I'll post a picture later. Good recipe for an unusual pickle -- thanks DiB's.
